Angry 3 way switch

Trying to install 3 way switch. I run 14/3 wire from one 3 way switch to junction box, run 14/3 wire from the other 3 way switch tired the 2 red wires together, tired the 2 black wires together, then with my feed wire tired the black wire to one of the white wires, tired the black wire from the light to the other white, then tired the white wire from feed wire to white wire of light but it kicks out my breaker what did I do wrong.

You didn't tell us how you connected the wires to the switches or which boxes the switches, fixture or power is in. I can't tell from your description how you actually connected the wires.

I think this drawing might be what you are trying to do.
